# Ubuntu – Missing system tray icons Ubuntu Gnome 18.04

18.04gnomesystem-tray

I have Ubuntu 18.04 and I am using the default Gnome. I updated and all of the system tray icons were missing.

Is this a bug? Can this be fixed? I cannot see any of the unread messages that I have in Skype / Slack etc. And there is no way to know about missed notifications.

Does someone know how to fix this issue?

• You may also simply try to relaunch gnome shell and see if it works better:

(Alt+F2) gnome-shell --replace


Or the short and easy way

(Alt+F2) r (Enter)


Yes, just the letter "r".
